Over 4,000 teddy bears donated to a Neosho, Missouri hospital
NEOSHO, MISSOURI -
Edward and Sharon Leavitt started the program Calvary Cares Bears Ministry in 2009. The program donates teddy bears for children who make a visit to Freeman Neosho Hospital. In six years over 4,000 bears have been donated.
Last year Edward passed away and Freeman honored him with a plaque. Sharon works on bears every night brushing them and irons on patches on their feet.
Calvary Baptist Church in Neosho funds the program.
